About Storytime

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we created Indigenous Storytime in order to provide wakanyeja (children) with continued access to indigenous culture and language. Indigenous Storytime is “modernized storytelling” shared in a platform that honors oral tradition and available to all who join. We encourage teachers and storytellers from all across Turtle Island to contribute. You can join our Facebook group for live Storytime videos or subscribe to our YouTube channel where the videos get posted later. It is our hope that the stories and experiences will support children in the formation of a positive indigenous cultural identity.

Readers

Although we are grateful for the efforts of our adult readers, we continually want to honor the voices of our indigenous youth. Our junior readers have the opportunity to read what they want to read and listeners around their age instantly have a connection with them. Make sure to check out their videos on Facebook or YouTube and give them a comment to let them know how great they have done. If your child would like to read, get in touch with us and we can showcase them on our site. You can always post a reading in the Facebook group also. 

Readers

Our guest readers do an amazing job. If you are interested in reading, please fill out our contact form and get in touch with us. We would love to have guest readers of all ages. If you have an indigenous story to share, please reach out.
